I am very fair and it leaves my skin looking a bit more pale, but I've found that adding just a tiny bit of my makeup foundation balances out the color. Frankly, I think it makes me look younger, as another reviewer pointed out.
(Edited on Dec 3. 2010: A little bit goes a long, long way! Start with a little bit, no bigger than a dime. Rub your hands together then rub onto your skin. If you need more, you can add it. I no longer add any makeup to balance the color. I use only the smallest amount and find that my skin looks great with no make-up - and not white! I find that the protection has not decreased.)
I suffer from acne and rosacea, am on a topical medicine that makes me more sensitive to the sun and my skin is naturally sensitive. Unlike other products, this doesn't burn or sting and I am confident that my skin is protected. I've not had any breakouts or other problems.
The smell is yummy, a food/cookie type smell. It has a 'Born On' date only 10 days before I placed my order. I really liked that it was fresh and hadn't been sitting in a warehouse for months.
Excellent protection from the sun and unnecessary chemicals.
I put Water Babies on her once and she broke out into a head to toe rash. I felt terrible. With this sunscreen that has never happend!
It's not billed as a waterproof product, only water resistant, but I have had similar results even when we weren't in the water.
Bottom line: it's good as far as it goes, but make sure to reapply, reapply, reapply.
Really, I wanted to like this stuff. I bought 3 bottles of it, sight unseen.
Well, here's what I found out:
1. When you first use it, only oil comes out. The oil and oxide separates. Even after shaking (who ever heard of having to shake a sunscreen?), it came out with variable consistency. My left arm was much less white than my right arm.
2. So there you have it. You turn white. My legs and arms turned white, even after a lot of rubbing, per the directions. My face looked like a death mask.
3. The oil gets on everything, my glass table needs Windex and my dark glasses got so oily that I couldn't rub it off using my cotton T-shirt. That might be a safety issue.
4. Try getting it off when the day is over. It takes a lot of soap and 3 times the normal shower time to get all the oil off your body.
5. It didn't work very well. My nose now looks like Rudolf's and my arms and legs, though not burnt, are much darker color than normal.
6. It has a short shelf life. It was manufactured 2 months before I received it and I have only 4 more months before it expires. Two of my three bottles would get thrown in the trash by my wife, but I'm going to store them in the fridge like an organic oil until next summer. $40 is $40.
7. It clogged my face pores and I got a pimple on the end of my nose. That never happened with my other oxybenzone filled sunscreens.
Use it in good health, but know the shortcomings.

Meh. Felt ok on the skin and does its job but there's much better sunscreen to be had even at this price. Water resistant? Not really.Published 10 days ago by Ken C.
Natural and a concerted effort to provide alternative, healthier option. Though it does not rub in well and so is best suited for times when you don;t mind having a very white... Read morePublished 11 months ago by Jayce
This was a messy, liquid. It was like smearing peanut butter on your skin. Didn't smell great either. I threw it in the trash.Published 13 months ago by C. Ferrara
Just too concentrated with natural sunscreens to blend in. Stays opaque white on the skin. With tons of rubbing it will leave a blueish sheen on the skin. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Amazon-tron 3000

Don't like it at all! Not easy to apply, you stay "white", and after a nice swimming.... you pick your bath towel and run home because you look like an allien!Published 17 months ago by M.
